You can even accentuate the need for tradition with the help of strategically placed rustic items that look aged but keep the overall look contemporary and clutter-free. Personalize your living room with creative and artistic accents that give that feeling of tranquility and comfortable relaxation for you, your family and your guests.
Speaking of unsightly items, nothing conceals them quite like a screen. The decorative screens in the room below add an artistic element to the space.
Next we see a New York City loft living room, which reminds us of how 3-sided seating can be perfect for large spaces. In other words, create a U-shape with your sofas and chairs, moving them away from the wall if necessary. Add a fun touch here and there, like the 1960s Pedro Friedeberg Hand chair and Alvar Alto lounge chairs shown below.
Another key element is life and lots of it. Add a couple of house plants here and there to liven up your living space, and flowers to bring you joy. While fresh cut flowers can make a beautiful arrangement, planted flowers or bonsais are a gift that will keep on giving possibly even year round. However, if indoor flora will induce an allergy attack for you or someone in your family, fake it with synthetic plants and floral prints.
Saying that what you’re about to see is a wonderfully designed living room, is nothing but an understatement. This is so alluring! This is spectacular, it’s gorgeous. Mario Testino is a great photographer, but it looks like he has great taste when it comes to interior design as his living room has attracted everyone’s attention with its artistic look and the fact that everything is placed right where it should be placed.
Muted tones and large blank paneled areas will create a wonderfully spacious effect and this can be further enhanced with the installation of a mid-tone or dark stone floor. Not only is this a handsome look to adopt in a property, but it is also a very practical one A minimalist style will give the impression of space and help your living room to appear a great deal larger than it actually is!
Who says your coffee table can’t double as seating while you host a gathering? Below we see a tufted coffee table/bench that can easily be moved to accommodate a group.
